invincible's. then we will have someone from california to talk about immigration. pardon me. weekends,w, on the "book tv" is on c-span two. will be featuring helena, montana. we have local content. we go on the road and visit with cities throughout the nation and learn the literary history. you will see those segments this weekend on "book tv" and tv." here istory a portion. citiess one of the few on our preconceived the spires of the cathedral and not have people fighting with each other. cathedralres of the and minarets and not have people fighting with each other between the two places. government. people understand and appreciate what government can do and cannot do. they know what it does well and what it does not do well. we have a lot of young families and people who love to mountain bike and ski or walk on trails. they kayak in the summer. it is a very active population. the biggest of expansion of this town since the statehood in 1889 -- we have struggled over these last 10 or 15 years to maintain the quality of life in small-town feeling and intimacy that people have around
the week to discuss further amendments and other topics like replacing our broken immigration system of the more disappointingly the little light workload this week of a day and a half is emblematic of how the next two months are calendar for this house of representatives. there's only 19 days left of work for this house before the end of the year. the house is only in session for 2 1/2 days before we recess in a week. again, i think that the american people expect and demand a minimum 40-hour workweek from the people that they hired to represent them here in washington. i think most people of this country have more than 19 days that they have to work in november and december. that's two full months. november and december. and yet we only have 19 days over that two-month period that this body will be in session. and yet there are critical issues that the american people are demanding that we act on. as an example today is the 302nd day of 2013 that we have failed to bring to the floor a comprehensive immigration reform bill. time is running short. and the need for a comprehensive imm
reform on the rocks. even senator marco rubio admits that efforts to change immigration reform and the law not going so good. the agenda panel will weigh in on that coming up. >>> jay z breaking his silence about his big deal with the department store barney's and allegations of racial profiling by the store. why he says he isn't backing out. okay ladies, whenever you're ready. thank you. thank you. i got this. no, i'll get it! no, let me get this. seriously. hey, let me get it. ah, uh. i don't want you to pay for this. it's not happening, honey. let her get it. she got her safe driving bonus check from allstate last week. and it's her treat. what about a tip? oh, here's one... get an allstate agent. nice!

'cause you only have to take one... [ male announ
lgbt women, immigrant women and native american women. what is that? who are these people? over 60% of the republicans voted against -- in the house voted against the violence against women act. this is about respect for who we are, for what our judgment is, what our responsibility is to use our free will. sizing and time of our families. decisions made within our families. not within the courts or the legislatures of some states. >> it struck me that part of the strategy, frankly, on the violence against women act was kind of shaming the republicans into this idea that we would put aside certain categories of women that wouldn't be covered. and i'm wondering, the senate is going to do its first test vote on enda. but the question is will it -- what will happen in the house? what do you think the prospects are in the house? >> let me just say on that subject, as with shutting down government as opening it up as with the immigration bill as with 95% of -- at least 95% of the democrats are on the legislation and will vote for the legislation. so we only need 10% of the republicans wi
president obama renewed his push for immigration reform. listen to this. >> everybody knows that our current immigration system is broken. across the political spectrum, people understand that. we've known it for years. let's not wait. it doesn't get easier to just put it off. let's do it now. let's not delay. let's get this done. and let's do it in a bipartisan fashion. >> and what do you know, cynthia? days later marco rubio backs away from the immigration bill that he worked on. i mean, is he jumping ship because he doesn't want to help president obama succeed? if obama's for it, they're against it. is that what we're looking at here? >> if obama's for it, they're against it. that is absolutely the code of the republican party at the moment. let's look at immigration reform here. there are a kwoum things going on here. it would be a signature accomplishment for the president. if he were able to get immigration reform because immigrants people here without papers have been languishing in this country for decades. the other thing republicans fear, though, is if they allow undocumented immig
, let's do a budget, a farm bill, and immigration reform. he drops the mike and leaves. changingee the tone is so much and the expectations in the house are changing, because we just got passed a major showdown in congress, so maybe people are worn down and want to get something done. host: what does it do when it comes to the topic of sequester or sequestration cuts that are supposed to affect next year? guest: that is the key of this whole deal. the house and senate spending numbers they have been working off so far are different in large part because the house, the republicans in the house are working off a number that accounts for the sequester cuts having. the democrats in the senate, not so. as a result of that, what you have is they are looking for sequester replacement. they are trying to find savings elsewhere in the budget. these savings can either be spending cuts or this sort of closing of tax loopholes, these tax expenditures, and either way you are looking for some way to bridge the gap, it is about a $90 billion gap, so it is not easy. there might be some way to find
else. it helps -- it's helped the immigrant community. too often we find in houston, where we have a lot of immigrants from all over the world, that someone is in the united states, they are assaulted by someone else that's in the united states, both undocumented, and the batter tells the victim that if you call the police, i'm going to send you back to where you came from. now, he can't do that. but she thinks he can do that. and so she doesn't call the police. and this guy gets away with hurting her and plus she continues to be victimized. we changed that law because they can come forward, they can get a special visa, they can testify. they can get this person prosecuteded a he should. so it's a good people of legislation and we certainly need to be enforcing the rules under the law. people that i have come in contact with over the years have impacted me and of course many of those have been victims of crime, many of those victims of domestic violence. one that i met after i came here to congress was a wonderful lady that lives real close to us. he lives over in maryland. she's m
representing the fourth congressional district chair of the congressional hispanic caucus immigration task force and leader in effort to pursue comprehensive immigration reform. in addition he serves on the house judiciary committee and the house permanent select committee on intelligence. congressman gutierrez thank you for joining us today. >> thank you chairman durbin and ranking member cruz thank you for the opportunity to testify on this important issue. asked in my condolences to the families who have lost loved ones. ms. fulton and ms. mike that i am deeply sorry for your loss and i appreciate a presence here today. as one dad to another i said to mr. martin that i too feel your pain and thank you for being here. as a parent i was shocked by the death of trayvon martin and the fact that no one was even arrested after it happened and unarmed teenager was pursued by an armed adult in the neighborhood where he was in the neighborhood and no one was convicted of a crime. i respect the verdict in the judicial process but a deep concerns about the expansion of self-defense laws the prolif
, immigrants, 11 million undocumented people, a lot of evangelicals have been reading the bible and saying wait a minute, how we treat them is how we treat christ himself and they take a different stance than bill is taking on immigration reform. >> if christ was on earth today, would he be treating the poor the way the conservatives do? today 48 million americans woke up with a smaller s.n.a.p. payment. would jesus treat the poor the way the conservatives have? >> well, the principle of politics, if you're a follower of jesus, is simply how we treat those who he called the least of these. i was hungry, and you cut my food stamps. i was a stranger, you didn't welcome me. i was sick, and you wanted to deny me health care. this is not what really we're looking for here. how do we talk about how to treat those who are the least of these -- one translation says those who are unimportant or seem unimportant. how we treat them is whether or not we're following jesus. that's really the test. and that kind of politics would overturn the established politics all over the place and it does if we pay atte
of newcomers and lots of immigrants. >> like the next governor. >> huge -- >> like the next governor. >> exactly. like the next governor. immigrant carpet bagger, whatever you want to call him. >> george allen wasn't from virginia. look. allen wasn't from virginia. robb wasn't from virginia. >> one factor in this race, though, and certainly in the tea party numbers was the shutdown because of the heavy federal government presence here in northern virginia. the tea party's hostility toward government employees and government spending in general. including defense spending which partly explains i think why with cuccinelli is getting beat down in newport news. >> these numbers are stirring. look at this. among the voters down there, republicans have once again fielded a candidate who women generally flee from in droves. if women flee in droves. even in the case of rape and incest which for some people is an exception is losing to terry mcauliffe among women. this is like the new york mayor's race. 24-point difference. among basically even among men tied. so the issues that grab our atte
we enjoy in america. has nothing whatever to do with immigration. it is the statue of liberty, not the statue of immigration. >> we don't fall for that stuff here. >> and today's top trender. shocker. >> i'm shocked. >> shocked. >> the republican two-word culture returns. >> the reports of sticker shock for those who are young and healthy are widespread. >> sticker shock. >> sticker shock. >> sticker shock. >> you would be shocked to know what it costs. ♪ >>> joining me now is dr. kory a bare, ceo, and professor at lsu health science center. great to have you with us, doctor. appreciate your time tonight. is it disingenuous in a mislabel by the media and by the conservatives to use the term "sticker shock?" >> yeah, it is. because guess what? you're getting a better product. i mean, it's not sticker shock when you want to buy a rolls-royce and you get the rolls-royce. i mean, obviously, the subsidies are going to help pay for the insurance of the people. and that's why we have got to get the website fixed, and, you know, i'm not excusing obama care -- obama for this website
signals on immigration reform. when you talk to your colleagues on the other side of the aisle, do you get the sense that they personally believe something like this is a good idea but are afraid to act, or that there is an entrenched disbelief in doing this kind of civil rights action? >> the country is moving. and so are my colleagues toward this kind of belief that discrimination has no place in american society based on sexual orientati orientation, that anybody discriminating against any member of the lgbt community is acting wrongly morally, and ought to be banned from doing it legally. and i have been involved in this kind of enforcement action as a state attorney general, clearly there are measures that express the moral conscience of the nation. i think that's what's reflected in my colleagues, being more willing, on both sides of the aisle, to revisit and reconsider and move in this direction. >> all right. senator richard blumenthal, we will be watching for that vote and thank you for being here. >> thank you. >>> still ahead, the latest on friday's shooting at l.a.x. more guns.
're blocking action on immigration reform, so they're doing nothing to appeal to latinos. they've really -- cuccinelli continues to insist that this is a referendum on obama care and rollout problems aside and we know we've seen those, we know that women love obama care. so not just abortion, not just all this rhetoric and action if he got elected on abortion is problematic for women, but obama care as well. obama care has really helped women by making sure that women are no longer paying more than men for the simple fact of bringing the next generation into the world. and republicans hate this. but women love it. so they've really -- they spent a year in the wilderness and they're not getting out any time soon. >> you know, cynthia, in line with that, the house speaker john boehner today said he's opposing the non-discrimination act. his spokesperson issued this statement, quote, the speaker believes this legislation will increase frivolous litigation and cost american jobs. >> it's stunning, reverend al. it is absolutely stunning to see the republican party running away. this is a part
plagiarism was not isolated. rand paul has done this before. he pointed to a june 12 speech on immigration reform. in which senator paul discuss aid movie, different movie called "stand and deliver." again, senator paul appears to have plagiarized sections of the wikipedia entry on that movie. it was a speech in washington, d.c. today, he posted excerpts of the speech at buzz feed. compare them to the entry from the movie. it turns out rand paul did this stand and deliver plagiarism thing more than once. and tonight we have the tape to prove it. on march 19th of this year, rand paul gave a speech to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. he made reference to the movie "stand and deliver" the wikipedia entry describes the plain plot this way "in the area of east los angeles california in 1982 in an environment that values quick fix over education, a new teacher at garfield high school." that's wikipedia. here's rand paul. >> in the area of east l.a., in 1982, in an environment that values a quick fix on education over learning, escalante was a new math teacher. >> just look gattica. rand pa
immigration. we have 3.1 people -- 3.1 million people come here every year. i think there is opportunity. i believe in hope and change. i believe in a better world. i don't speak for north dakota. the good people out here are probably the toughest men i have ever met in my life out here did -- out here. i see whole crews of women landscapers, men in the oil fields, there are mostly white and black eyes out here. the idea that you need illegal immigrants to work the business, or even the harvested -- i worked in the harvest and there were a lot of mexicans but a lot of white guys to. a lot of indians even. say, i the hard part to do not understand why democrats, women who have a child that is even if he has an education he's finished. i have been -- i am 49 and i have been through the ringer of reverse discrimination. i don't know how you vote against the interest of your race and people. we have to have a loyalty or your children are going to be finished. thank you for sharing your story. if you are just tuning in or joining us on c-span radio, which is heard nationwide, we have moved to xm
that are important, immigration, the environment, he takes a more moderate stance. it's a story, in a purple state, a tea party candidate is going to be at a disadvantage. >> and hurricane sandy, his ability, what he did, obviously, we're now having the new york city marathon this year. which we didn't have last year. because of how he handled hurricane sandy basically determined his election. >> christie said, i asked him about these issues, he said, you know what you guys all misunderstand about politics, it's not about ticking off boxes on this issue or that issue, he said that, at the end, it's a personal judgment about your leaders. politics is personal. we'll see. it was an interesting analysis about what a leader is. >> we'll have to do that. >> talk about virginia for a second, because, you know, if terry mcauliffe does wins, the republicans will be shut out of all the top offices in virginia. is this state completely transformed? >> it's astounding. we'll have the democrats if it goes the way we think controlling both senate seats the governor, the lieutenant governor and the attorney gen
't think that -- unless he does a romney, become anti- anti-immigration and anti-gun and a whole range of other issues to take into the primary. if you look at our polling we did for democracy corps, one quarter of the republicans are base voters. are moderates. on the democratic side, two-thirds are self identified conservatives and moderates. and when we started our process of change, half of our voters were moderates. so it's a very diverse party. the republican party is not. and i think that will be in evidence i think in the virginia -- the virginia is the primary story because cuccinelli came out of a process where base voters had their say. this was not a base process in new jersey where base -- republican base voters speak out. >> look, i understand completely what you're saying about chris christie. but he looks at it like he's building a coalition of some democrats, even hispanics. and he seems to think, at least in a conversation yesterday with our kelly o'donnell, that a huge victory margin will give some republicans, maybe even some conservative republicans, reason to take
